Chocoholic: Malted Chocolate Milkshake

What's the secret to making a chocolate milkshake better? Add malt! A healthy dose of malted milk powder makes this milkshake taste like a frozen malted milk ball.

Notes: For the creamiest results, use a good quality ice cream such as Haagen-Dazs. I used Horlicks malted milk powder for this milkshake, but Carnation brand should work just as well. To help keep the milkshake from melting too fast, chill the blender pitcher first.
